Homemade Facial Mask for Dark Spots and Acne Face Mask with Parsley, Honey and Lemon
Fresh lemon juice is another natural cure for dark spots and discolored skin, but it needs to be applied often for best results. Be aware though that using lemon juice on your face regularly may make it more sensitive to the sun.
It can also be quite drying when used on the whole face, so it’s better to use the following lemon juice and parsley face treatment no more than twice a week. For dark spots and small areas of discolored skin, lemon juice could be applied topically twice a day, but just to the specifically affected area.
Manuka honey, with its especially strong antibacterial properties, is said to be the best honey for acne treatments if you can afford it. If not, a good, unfiltered raw honey is far superior to regular store-bought honey for treating acne.
How to Make a Parsley, Lemon and Honey Face Mask
- 1 medium-sized head of fresh organic parsley, soaked in warm water then well chopped.
- 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice (reduced by half if you have dry skin and perhaps exclude entirely for sensitive skin).
- 2 teaspoons of a unfiltered raw honey that hasn’t been heat-treated.
Start by cutting a branch of parsley into small pieces with a knife or kitchen scissors. Curly parsley with its darker green color may be a little better for this face mask, but the flat leaf variety is fine if that’s what you have.
Crush the parsley in a mortar and pestle until it’s starting to become a paste. You can add a very small amount of lemon juice if this helps, but it’s best to just use the dampness from the soaking at the start.
Mix in the raw honey and lemon juice and mash it all up well with the pestle. You can transfer it to a lighter bowl to use, but I kind of like making face masks like this up in my heavy marble mortar and using it straight from there.
To apply this face mask, first cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser. Rinse and pat dry, then gently smooth the mask over your face, avoiding the eye area. If you have a lot of blackheads you can put extra on the nose to really get to work on any blackheads.
Lie down and relax for 10 to 15 minutes to let the treatment do it’s work.
